Dude, that's a *beast*!

Man, that's a very stylish looking white supra, is that a 1/25 Revell kit? What kind of plastic model kit is it?

Oh yeah, the reason I woke up early today was because there was a special sale on Mini-Z's today!

This afternoon, I will have my very own Silver S2000!!!

*Shinji, the more I look at ur (TAMIYA) Supra, the more I like it!

Maybe one way of sticking ur body on could be, using disposable Velcro tabs? I have a few of those at home and they are very strong, just stick some on the chassis, and the other sides of the tab on the underside of the body.

It's a good, fairly sturdy way, and it doesn't have to be permanent either if u want to change to a different body.

Man, I've always liked Supra's (along with Ferrari's). I've seen some places where folks make a side body clips just like those on regular Z cars. You just have to fashion something along those lines or take them from a "junk" body. I was going to try to do that, but then I realized that I have more than 3 bodies for each of my Z chassis (what's the plural of Chassis?).
